Title

Suspended particle size distribution data from three locations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California, 2017 to 2018

Abstract

These data present suspended particle size distributions collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center at three locations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Data were collected in Lindsey Slough on April 4 and April 18, 2017, and near the mouth of the Mokelumne River and in Middle River on March 14, 2018 by deploying a Sequoia Scientific Laser In-situ Scattering and Transmissometry instrument (LISST 100x) from a small vessel during the deployment of the hydrographic time series data instruments. At each site, data were collected 1 to 2 times, generally near the water surface, at mid depth, and near the sediment bed. These data were collected as part of a study on the effects of invasive aquatic vegetation on sediment transport in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Users are advised to check metadata and instrument information carefully for applicable time periods of specific data.
